Where are you going to college next year? (2016–17)

Anything that's on topic but doesn't fit elsewhere, including related events that might be of interest to quizbowl players (KMO, Science Bowl, etc).

Where are you going to college next year? (2016–17)

Postby 1.82 » Mon Mar 06, 2017 12:32 pm

If you know that you'll be going to college next year and plan on playing quizbowl, post where you're headed in this thread. As always, only post in this thread if you've decided on a school; don't post in this thread to say that you're thinking about some schools but don't know for sure yet, although you should feel free to contact people from schools you've been accepted to if you're interested in playing quizbowl there.

I"m going to Purdue. My parents work there and I want to be an engineer so it's a pretty sweet gig. It's unfortunate that they don't have a more developed quiz bowl program... hopefully I can help with that.

I believe that this post is best done by quoting King Lebron:

Lebron James wrote:In this fall... this is very tough... in this fall I'm going to take my talents to South [Bend] and join the [Fighting Irish]. I feel like it's going to give me the best opportunity to win and to win for multiple years, and not only just to win in the regular season or just to win five games in a row or three games in a row, I want to be able to win championships. And I feel like I can compete down there.


In all seriousness, I am going to Notre Dame and am hoping to go to lots of tournaments in the Chicagoland area. Also hoping to continue to volunteer at my old stomping grounds in the northern Illinois area.

Victor Pavao played SCT for Villanova solo this year, and was a junior, so I would guess he will be there again next year.

So, preliminary battle lines in terms of the Midwest next year:
Notre Dame (Slick Rick) vs. Minnesota (Brian Kalathiveetil/John Waldron) vs. MSU (Me/Devin) vs. Chicago (a lot of good history/lit players) vs. Mizzou (Joe)
